This was written for my sweetheart's oldest granddaughter as she graduates from high school this month.


Today starts your future.
Graduation day is extra special.
Just ask your proud family,
they’ll be glad to tell ya.
I know not everyone
has the same belief that I do.
But I’m confident that
your dad is smiling down at you.
So as you think of him
on this very important day,
know that he sees you as beautiful
in every single way.
Continue on your path
of hard work and determination.
And don’t forget to give yourself
a well-deserved vacation.
Success and happiness can be yours.
You’re already on your way.
Set high goals for yourself,
and let no one lead you astray.
You’re pretty and smart.
The world is at your feet.
Go out there and ‘git em’.
I know you can’t be beat.
